Outcome Comparisons of Formal Outplacement Services and Informal Support.
Davy, Jeanette A.; And Others
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v6 n3 p275-88 Fall 1995
Of white-collar workers surveyed 3 and 6 months after layoff, 54 had participated in informal social support groups and 79 received formal outplacement services. The latter had higher job search self-efficacy and were more optimistic. There were no differences in number of job offers after three months, but support group members had an advantage finding jobs comparable to those lost. (SK)
